Hey Buddy, want a BART station? Berkeley Downtown for L$25/square meter

Published by at 0037h under BART Station,SL In General

The iconic Berkeley BART station has been listed for sale (all build objects included) in Second Life.  In-world, simply visit the region Gualala  192 / 50 / 24 to take a look.  Under the covers, there are three parcels that are augmented by ample protected Linden land, including a picturesque road and bridge, a boat channel, and a canal.  The land took two years to consolidate, and involved about eight parcel purchases into the three now joined for sale. Two of the contiguous areas separated by the canal have been bridged using meticulous construction methods.

But the best part about this site is the 1000-prim Level 3 build.  It’s a  precise model about 1/3 scale, so that most Tiny avatars can walk around inside it.  Surface details, building exteriors and station interiors were shot in 2007, but look as good as new despite Gualala’s drizzly climate!

The station is on offer starting 2009 01 14 for L$116,800.  Proceeds will be used to support a non-Berkeley build in a nearby region.
